    I find that no matter how far I drive, the flat spot always stays at the bottom........

    Just talk to your tyres Mo.

    That way if they are feeling a little flat, you perk them up.

    If your tyres are bulging a bit, then you have something in common what with your hernia and all.

    If you don't have a foot or so and need to park on the same spot i.e. you have drive around the block, mark the tyres with chalk so you know where they were before. (y)

    and then along comes me..:D

    sorry..

    just wondering actually if that's the reason that some roads make you feel like you've got square wheels on or that the tyres have been replaced with flip flops, have come across a few like that, it always makes me laugh when that happens..

    Worse roads are the concrete ones with the "Pitch/Tar" joins every 20 yds... :swear:

    I like those.. but I like French smooth roads better

    I was told when I bought my caravan that it had to move once a month to avoid damage to the tyres.. but they said full rotation of the tyre I think. For caravans they sell devices to store them without their wheels on to prevent it.. don't need those for motorhomes of course because they can be used all year..
